This one is for semi-lazy nights when you still want to get something vibrant and seasonal on the table. All things green in a quick, weeknight pasta option. It’s feel-good food that won’t weigh you down. The ponzu dressing comes together in a flash, boosted with a good dose of garlic and a thread of toasted sesame oil. The broccoli and green beans are cooked in the same water as the pasta, and everything gets tossed together in one big bowl to serve family style.
The recipe is incredibly versatile – it is vegan as written, you can use GF pasta if that is a consideration, and there is very little added oil, if you’re keeping an eye on that. It can adapt through the seasons – swap in asparagus/favas in spring, roasted cubes of winter squash or sweet potatoes later in the year.
